Preface

These regulations are adopted to enable the Department, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to be of greater assistance to Maryland swine producers in a program of brucellosis control and eradication. Testing and validation of an individual herd under this program will be undertaken only at the request of the herd owner. Area testing and validation will be undertaken only with the consent of a majority of the swine breeders within an area.
